The RAGE protein is activated by stress and the threat of starvation, making our bodies conserve fat to burn later, It helped us in early human history, but now may make us obese, a new NYU study found.
Obesity and the related medical, social and economic impacts are relevant multifactorial and chronic conditions that also have a meaningful impact on outcomes following severe injury, including burns. In addition to burn-specific difficulties such as adequ...
ConclusionsMicroRNA-203 (miR-203) promotes white adipose tissue browning in cold exposed mice and improves glucose tolerance in HFD fed mice by repressing IFN-γ.Since miR-203 is activated by cAMP-dependent C/EBPβ up-regulation and directlyrepressesIFN-γ signal pathway, we declare that miR-203 acts as a messenger between cAMP signal pathway and IFN-γ signal pathway.Graphical abstract
BEST weight loss supplements: Losing weight may be at the forefront of many people ’s minds with the arrival of summer and everyone wanting to look their best. Shedding pounds can also have a positive impact on a person’s health, especially if they’re overweight.

(Rockefeller University) Scientists have found a group of brain cells that influence body mass in two ways, by controlling how much we eat as well as how much energy we burn. The findings could lead to new drugs to help people shed weight.
As backyard cookout season kicks into high gear, many people may be eyeing their sizzling burgers and dogs with suspicion. And for good reason: a number of studies published in the past two decades have turned up evidence that eating charred, smoked, and well-done meat could raise cancer risk—pancreatic, colorectal, and prostate cancers, in particular. A 2010 review of the evidence on cancer and “well-done” meat, conducted by researchers at Vanderbilt University, concluded that “the majority of these studies have shown that high intake of well-done meat and high exposure to meat carcinogens, particu...
Here is what this study found about caffeine and brown fat and what the implications may be about coffee drinking, weight loss, and obesity.
Scientists at the University of Nottingham used nine people to test their theory, which had already been successful in a lab. Coffee was found to increase activity in people's brown fat, which burns calories.
By Katie Hunt, CNN (CNN) — Drinking coffee could activate the body’s fat-fighting defenses, a discovery that could have potential implications in the battle against obesity and diabetes. In a study published Monday, researchers at the University of Nottingham said that coffee may help stimulate our brown fat reserves, also known as brown adipose tissue, which play a key role in how quickly we can burn calories. There are two forms of fat cells, brown cells and white cells, and each plays a different role in our metabolism. While brown cells help generate heat, white cells are responsible for the storage of...
